Thanks again depending how I do in the tournament and if room at Fallsview is to long of a wait for cash games might try this out.

This really is a big deal. Most money goes in from Fallsview, most money goes out at Niagara.

Re: Niagara Falls -- both US and Canadian sides

Played five hours at a $2/$5 NL table at Fallsview yesterday afternoon.

I called ahead from Hamilton at 1pm, and was #30 on the list (#12 live) when I checked in an hour later. 15 minutes of waiting and a new table opened up. The room had about a half-dozen $2/$5 NL tables going all afternoon, and we occassionally were less than full with open seating.

Vince was working the floor, he was very pleasant and polite.

I was stuck on table 6 in the far back, could not get any wifi signal on my cell phone. Bit of a hassle to walk to the main casino floor next to the craps tables to check e-mail, cost me a number of free hands. Perhaps it was just my phone.

No tableside food service -- what the hell??

Gotta love this one... dealers cannot sell you chips out of their racks. Why the **** do you have $5,000 in green sitting right there then?? My buddy busts out and wants to rebuy... cannot buy from the dealer, cash does not play, nobody at the table has chips in their pocket that they are willing to sell, nor can they go south and sell from their stack, the room has no chip runners... so he has to resort to leaving the table for 10 minutes, walking across the floor, waiting in line and buying them from the cage himself. Pretty ridiculous.

$6 / half hour time charge instead of a per-hand rake. Why do they do this? Brantford doesn't have a time charge, neither does Casino Niagara if I'm correct.

Brantford rakes the $2/$5 and $5/$10, but they do also use a time charge in the $10/$20 and $20/$40 games. Paying session fees rather than rake every hand actually saves you A LOT of money.

I definately agree with you about the rebuys though. Walking all the way to the cage for more chips is so ridiculous. Especially on days when the first cage is closed and you have to walk all the way acrosss the casino! Maybe they're hoping we'll stop and play some blackjack on the way, LOL.

Makes sense. I have never played higher than $5/$10 at Brantford.

Re: Niagara Falls -- both US and Canadian sides

Oh well I lost 400~ and change, lost a bunch of 40$ pots since all the flops were going 5-6 way no one ever folded then, and losta 750~(250$ me) pot set < set & 3rd random fihs with flush draw.

The games were omg juicy, but I should just stick to massively multitabling 10 and 25nl online since I do better their, and dont get so bored, lol.

Re: Niagara Falls -- both US and Canadian sides

The BBJ went off last night at Casino Niagara. I haven't been there in a week or so and I was surprised when I checked in and saw that it was at $66K.

The worst part about it all was that I was suppose to be seated at that table. But someone else requested a table change to that table so I had to take his seat at his old table.

Re: Niagara Falls -- both US and Canadian sides

can anyone confirm that you don't actually need to play for free parking at Niagara, just a card?
